Cut plane position in model question

Post by BDM »

I have a model that is 1.2" thick and I would like to cut two halves out of .75" wood and then glue them together. I set my cut plane position to center (.60") and the plane looks like it is cutting it in half, but when I do the preview, the deepest cut is .6" rather than close to the .75" I would expect. Do I need to take the difference between .75 and .60 (.15) and tell the program that the depth of the model below the surface is .15? The help file isn't that clear on the subject, so I wanted to make sure I understood what the program is doing.

Thanks,

BDM

I think I answered my own question by playing around with depth and checking the preview, but never hurts to double check.
